Market report - April 2014

Markets are fairly quiet at present, with the larger consumer buyers having good cover already bought up until June - and nobody showing much interest in trading new crop as yet. Markets have obviously been more nervous since the Ukrainian political crisis erupted, and weather concerns elsewhere have also given support to prices recently. We believe that current values do look attractive as a lot of bullish news is factored into the market, and the good Spring drilling window should result in an increased UK cropped area.

We strongly suggest that if you have old crop stock to sell before May you do so soon, before mills are filled. If you're prepared to hold on into July there are some very good premiums available.
